This year’s World Aid Walk, once again sponsored by Ipes private equity fund services, will be started by the Bailiff in Market Square, St Peter Port at 9am on Monday 4th May.
The Bailiff, Richard Collas, has supported the event for several years and will start the walk from the balcony in Market Square where he will sound the horn signalling the start of the event.
The 20km walk sponsored by Ipes for the 15th consecutive year will start and finish in Market Square on 4th May, with walks also taking place in Herm and Sark on the same day.
It is the third year the walk will take an alternative route as the new format proved very popular in previous years. Walkers will go through the High Street and along the seafront into the Vale and onto the West Coast before returning to St Peter Port up the Rohais.
More than 1,000 walkers are expected to take part in the annual event and it is not too late to enter. You can enter online via Race Nation, download an entry form from our web page or you can enter on the morning of the event at Market Square.
This year the World Aid Walk also welcome a new charity, The Eleanor Foundation, to the fold. Action Aid, Christian Aid, Save the Children, Oxfam,The Tumaini Fund and The Eleanor Foundation all benefit from the funds raised by walkers. Each charity has its own projects earmarked that the funds from the walk will go towards. Please visit their pages on our website for more information on each charity.
